Belated Merry Christmas to All
Needed a bit of a break from crafting and blogging so I apologize for being absent for so long. I have managed an entry into the Fripperies and Butterflies Challenge using the fab free Santa Collage sheet provided for the challenge.
I'm also entering this in the Gecko Galz FB In with the New, Recycle the Old Challenge as it started like this. Using a safety can opener, I opened the bottom (ate the soup) and cleaned it thoroughly and removed the label.
I printed Gecko Galz digi papers from the Christmas Past pack and covered the can and top and bottom (cutting out and area to slide under the pop top with a small circle punch) and adhered them to the can with Score tape. I resized the paper and also cut a matching tag, then fussy cut an image for the tag and glued it on.
Here are the other 3 sides of the can, each with a fussy cut Santa from the collage sheet. Finally I added a bow and bells to the top. Once filled, you glue the bottom back on with hot glue and the recipient opens the container with the pop top. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and here's wishing you a fabulous New Year.
I'm also entering this in the 613 Avenue Create ATG Challenge, Eclectic Ellapu Vintage Christmas and Christmas Not a Card, Simon Says Wednesday ATG, Recycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent ATG but must Recycle, Crafty Hazelnut's December Patterned Paper Challenge, CHNC ATG As Long As It's Christmas, and CHNC December Christmas Extra Challenge.
